Let your students have fun while learning about numbers before and after a given number. This number sense math center is so easy to prepare – there's no cutting involved.

Laminate if you wish or simply place in a page protector. All you need is a pencil and paper clip to make a spinner and some game markers.

To play, players travel around the game board and read the number they land on. You have a choice of three recording sheets.

  • Sheet 1 requires players to write the numbers before and after the number they landed on
  • Sheet 2 requires players to write the two numbers after the number they landed on.
  • Sheet 3 requires players to write the two numbers before the number they landed on.

Product features:

♦ Print in full color, limited color or black ink only

♦ Illustrated rules page

♦ 3 recording sheets

♦ Answer guide

♦ Consistent game design among all ‘Animal Antics’ centers to encourage independence.

This center can be found in the growing bundle of Math Center Games for First Grade.
